Pawsitively Clean, Carpet Rental Machine at PetSmart Review & Giveaway


As I mentioned in my previous post, I have been busy decorating the house for Christmas.  But before I started decking the halls I felt I needed a clean base.  The holiday time of year can be hectic and chaotic with a lot of extra stuff around the house.  I knew I would feel unnerved if I had a dirty kitchen floor and dirty carpets underneath all the holiday cheer.

Luckily, PetSmart was there to help!  PetSmart?  Yep, they currently have Bissell Carpet Cleaning Systems available for rent over a 24 hour period.   Luckily, for me my PetSmart store is adjacent to my local Target store.  It only took a matter of minutes to rent the machine in order to give my house a deep clean.

The rental was located as soon as I entered the store in a special security case.  I quick request from a helpful check-out girl had me rolling away with the machine in no time.

The cost for a 24 hour rental is $24.99.  At my store there was a $15 secure fee.  But this fee was refunded upon safe return of the machine.

Once at home, it was clear my bedroom carpet was in desperate need of a good cleaning.  Pets are so messy.  They inevitably carry dirt and other not so pleasant things.   But three little boys are not so different than dogs in this respect:)  I didn’t even want to think about all the Cheerios that were bound to be engrained into the carpet.

I actually already own a steam cleaner.  Therefore I was curious to see how this Bissell machine would compare.  I have steam cleaned this very carpet a couple of times and it looks good for a little while, but it doesn’t take look to look grimy again.

Perhaps my experience with  my own steam cleaner made using this Bissell model easy.  I can’t say for sure.  The clear directions on the machine certainly helped, but I didn’t have any problems preparing or operating the machine.

I used the Bissell formula in the machine as well.  It is recommended to use the same brand of formula with the same machine. And obviously, it is advisable to test a small unseen area of your carpet with the machine before using it in a high traffic area.  That being said, I didn’t have any problems.

And soon I was ready to roll!  Time to move the kids and furniture out of the way!:)

I don’t feel the need to share the guck that the machine picked up from my carpet.  That would be embarrassing:)  But it was gross.  But there is something so satisfying about seeing the dirty and grime being sucked up into the machine.  Goodbye dirt!  Goodbye dust!

In no time at all my carpet was looking good- really good.  My carpet looked brand new.  The unknown stain?  Gone! I can attest that it never looked as good when I steamed clean with my own machine.  And frankly the experience confirmed that my steam cleaner is not very powerful.  I don’t know that I would have understood that, until I saw the results from this Bissell machine.

I would highly consider renting this machine if you have animals or lots of children:) before entertaining this season.  A thorough deep clean is a good thing!

The Pawsitively Clean carpet cleaning machine is available at most PetSmart stores.  Call a store near you to find out if they carry this handy dandy machine.
